NEW YORK -- Colorado Avalanche forward Chuck Kobasew has been fined $2,500, the maximum allowed under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, for charging Vancouver defenseman Aaron Rome during NHL Game #1125 in Denver on Saturday, March 24, the National Hockey League’s Department of Player Safety announced today.

The incident occurred at 6:34 of the first period. A minor penalty for charging was assessed to Kobasew.

The fine money goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.

For me, it's a great win for our hockey team and for a lot of people back in Columbus, especially our fans in particular … people who have been devoted to this organization, it's big.
